There is no planet b, so let’s change the world together. With beautiful quality lifestyle products and zero waste. In India and Indonesia IWAS upcycles waste to wants! ‘Upping’ yesterday’s used goods for you to use again tomorrow. And making local people stronger in the process. It is super easy for you to make a difference! Shop smart, feel good.
